Subject: Hi ...
Thank you for the very generous review, CrossReach.

I kindly direct you to the original OCR'd text here:
https://archive.org/stream/AnExperimentWithTime/Dunne-AnExperimentWithTime_djvu.txt

This is what I had to work with. It doesn't excuse errors but the project never quite left 'Alpha' hence the 'a' at the end of the version.

I may have left that little dot in there as a cheeky reminder to any reader of one smidgen of the thousands I had to crawl through, page after page, removing from the text. (There are other typos, there is also a small error in Fig.13 ! )

What motivated me to create the PDF was to provide a small and more compatible e-book which could be read on nearly any e-book reader and shared easily and read without the need for proprietary 3rd party readers.

I think with the new phones that most people can access the scanned image books online.. but those books lack the text-search you so aptly pointed out.. coupled with horrendous OCR problems. :-\

I did try. It is unfinished. I believe I did include the link to the original scanned book in the ebook.

I still have the work folder with the OpenOffice document and all the graphics and texts. I would be happy to upload that if you are interested.

Kindest regards,
Oisin

Subject: Beautifully done
What an excellent job the editor has done on restoring and bringing this important work up into the 21st century. It is clear a lot of work has gone into this. A labour of love no doubt.

As to the text itself I haven't finished it yet. I have a paperback edition. I have had these experiences, which is what led me to Dunne. Seeking out an explanation for the inexplicable.

There are a couple of typographical errors, but there is no contact info for the editor so I'll leave it here. Part III chapter VIII has "only one. person."

The press notice from The Outline says "even now. who say".

Also there doesn't seem to be consistency in the the use of semi colons. Find and replace will fix that. I would suggest in the name of modernization to bring all the semi colons next to the word rather than with a space between. If you enter the semi colon into find with replace before, and then replace it with one that has no space it will change them all automatically.
